Yeah, the Janes Addiction version of Ripple is without a doubt the BEST cover of a Dead tune ever with Cracker's Loser ( not on Dedicated I know, it's on Kerosene hat )being second. Most of the times it seems the songs are a flat version of the original with no imagination. Oh and I'm still pissed about the Indigo Girls changed the lyric in Uncle John's, I mean if your offended then fine but why not pick a DIFFERENT song?

never been a fan of the carbon-copy-cover. i remember reading somewhere garcia specifcally praising jane's interpretation of ripple. i'm all but sure it was because they took a risk and shook it the hell up.

me either ESPECIALLY if on an album. I mean live is one thing but to put it on an album it better be special in it's own right imo. I love the way Janes did Ripple where it builds and builds and the cool percussion that band used.
